Friday's Wear Yellow Day promotes cancer awareness

Sting Cancer, a group formed by students and staff at Green Bay's Preble High School, is asking community members to support cancer awareness by wearing yellow on Friday

Wear Yellow Day is meant to allow businesses and establishments throughout Wisconsin to show support. The high school group sells yellow T-shirts and polo shirts as part of its efforts.

Contact Preble teacher Nick Nesvacil at nwnesvacil@gbaps.org for information about the group or to make a donation. The group sells shirts and proceeds are used to buy gas cards and gift cards for distribution in weekly gift baskets to cancer patients. The group also accepts monetary, raffle and silent auction items.

Nesvacil, a cancer survivor, helped launch Sting Cancer in 2004. The movement has grown from a few students at Preble to hundreds of students at 19 area schools. The group's mission is to reduce the effects of cancer by initiating and supporting programs and activities for schools and the surrounding community.
